Four more years!
MCnet has recently concluded a contract with the EU for four more years as a Marie Curie ITN, April 2017 to March 2021. The short-term studentship programme will soon restart accepting applications.

Until then, there are still opportunities for students to visit our groups for shorter periods - please contact MCnet team leaders directly.

The next network meeting will be held at CERN November 23rd-25th 2016 aimed at all members of the network, but especially our students and postdocs.

It will follow immediately after an employability training event on grant writing, aimed particularly at network students planning to submit Marie Curie Individual Fellowship applications, but open to all.

MCnet is funded by Marie Curie Actions

MCnet is a European Union funded Marie Curie Initial Training Network dedicated to developing and supporting general-purpose Monte Carlo event generators throughout the LHC era and beyond, and providing training of a wide selection of its user base, particularly through funded short-term 'residencies' and Annual Schools.

Monte Carlo event generators are central to high energy particle physics. They are used by almost all experimental collaborations to plan their experiments and analyze their data, and by theorists to simulate the complex final states of the fundamental interactions that may signal new physics. The network incorporates all the authors of current general purpose event generators, and has the main purposes of: These training objectives are being achieved both through dedicated activities and through our outreach and research activities:
